    If I were you, I would want to see a specialist right away in case the treatment is something that takes a long time. I would kick myself if I waited and then had to wait even longer. Especially since your doctor is suggesting seeing a specialist now, I would go.

    mo711 :  Nope.  I started on fertility treatments (Clomid) only 6 months in because of this very issue.  We are now 10 months in, we did get pregnant our second month on Clomid but miscarried so we are still figuring out my issues.  It’s helped me not to get so frustrated (even though I still do).

    I would make an appointment with the specialist and start doing things to track your ovulation – OPK’s, charting your temperature, etc. it’s likely something the specialist will have you do anyway. It provides a lot of information about if you ovulate, when, how long your luteal phase is, etc, which can give the specialist a ton of information about what’s going on with your cycles

    I’d wait it out on the specialist but definitely be tracking, temping, checking CM and doing OpK.

    I would try for a while and see. I was just put on Clomid for my wacky cycles. This way they will be more regular, but it was kind of an emotional step having to see the doc about it. I would start temping and tracking ovulation. That cut down on so much time and I was more educated about my body when I did go to the doctor. Good luck!

    Honestly, it’s been 5 months. I’d potentially let it go the full year and see how your cycles regulate. After that I would just go ahead and see a specialist. Here’s the thing…wayyy too many people I know put it off because of their age, assuming they were young and had plenty of time. Unfortunately if you wait too long you sometimes don’t get proactive about it until you’ve wasted a lot of time.

    I would go for sure. I had crazy wacky cycles and I wish I would have gone to the specialist sooner! I have been so much more relaxed and my cycles are finally being normalized but I waited the year like my general practice doctor told me too.
